Gallery lightbox from text link
Closed

    Hello, how do I implement a pop-up gallery lightbox that opens on the same page from clicking a text link? 

    I tried video lightbox but it will only open for a single image.

    I want the same effect as by clicking on either a nectar or basic gallery, it opens up a pop-up, and then all the images in that gallery slides inside the lightbox, but from a text-link instead of the image gallery.

    Is this possible with Salient, I can modify css and js but will need your guidance.

    Hello, I don't think I explained it well enough. 

    Please see attached photo the effect I am after. 

    I assume I will have to create a gallery on another page and have the text link do the same thing when clicked just as if I click on the gallery?

    Hi There,

    To view the gallery options in Salient you can view our doc url: http://themenectar.com/docs/salient/galleries/ .

    Unfortunately, there is no particular feature which would allow you to link to text as done in the reference screenshot.

    Thanks

    I can see that there is an on-click event to trigger the lightbox gallery in the shortcode in the gallery component, is there a way to copy that function and add it to the targeted text link? Provided that I built out the gallery somewhere else on the page.

    Hi There,

    This would not work out at the moment.

    Thanks.
